In 1998 1 ACS won Junior Hunter (JH), 4 ACS won Master Hunter (MH) and 1 ACS
won Senior Hunter (SH) titles.
In 1998 there was only 1 American Cocker Spaniel that was eligible to compete
in the American Spaniel Club National Field Trials held in October.
In 1999 4 ACS won Junior Hunter (JH) and 3 ACS won Senior Hunter (SH) titles.
In this the Twenty - First Century of the year 2000 the main obstacle in
holding a Field Trial is in locating the grounds to hold the event. Real
Estate prices have gone through the roof and most "Estates" of dog breeders
are either too small to hold the trial or they are non - existent. With the
ever encroaching expansion of the suburbs and of the cities into the wide
open spaces of the country there are fewer and fewer fields in which to hold
a Field Trial. It is becoming far and few between in this day and age when a
Club can have the use of a farmers field, what with all the legalities of
insurance and liabilities, etc. Then there is the matter of costs of lodging
and of getting to and from the trial site. This can and does have an effect
on the amount of Field Trials held and the ups and downs of entries.
In March of 2000 an American Cocker Spaniel WINS a Field Trial for the first
time in modern history! The last time an American Cocker Spaniel won a Field
Trial was in the 1960s!
